The heating season isn’t going to start for us for a little while, unlike most of the rest of the country. That means that you’re still going to be using your air conditioner for at least a few more weeks. There is still a chance that your air conditioner will end up with some sort of problem before summer ends, which means you need to be on the lookout for any and all signs that something is wrong with the system. Have a look at some of the most common signs that your air conditioner is in need of repairs below.

We’ve written before on this blog about the importance of air conditioning maintenance services, and the benefits they can provide for your system. We’ve also written about how it’s best to schedule preventive maintenance for your air conditioner during the spring, when you’re going to get the most benefit out of it. For those who missed the spring window for scheduling air conditioning maintenance, that might make it seem like it’s too late to have it done this year. That’s not the case! If you haven’t had air conditioning maintenance done yet this year, don’t give up on it! Let’s go over the benefits of air conditioning maintenance again, and why it’s not too late for you to schedule it this season.

Our climate here in Tampa Bay is one of the most coveted across the United States. We have very moderate winters and experience warm and summery temperatures for much of the year. We know this makes us a great vacation spot, but it also makes homeowners here viable candidates for ductless mini split systems.
Ductless mini split systems are great alternatives to traditional air conditioning because they meet a variety of heating and cooling needs in one space and omit the hassle of ductwork that central air conditioning requires.
If you’re looking to install ductless air conditioning in Tampa, FL, The A/C Guy of Tampa Bay Inc.’s team is the right crew for the job. We ensure that our staff is knowledgeable about installing, repairing, and maintaining all types of HVAC systems.

Homeowners often realize they need to get new air conditioning systems after a long, hot summer. If you are planning on upgrading your AC unit, don’t make the mistake of cutting corners with the installation. Installation is just as important as the cooling unit you purchase. Even with the newest, greatest air conditioning system, you’ll be hot in this humid Florida heat if the installation process is lackluster. Our team at the A/C Guy of Tampa Bay Inc. are experts in air conditioning installation in Tampa and we’re ready to assist any of your needs.

Air conditioner ice may seem like a good thing on a boiling hot day, but it really isn’t. It means your air conditioner is dealing with a serious problem. If you’re not careful, air conditioner ice can eventually cause the entire system to break down. We recommend that you call for repairs as soon as you notice that your system is freezing over.
While you’re waiting for your technician to arrive, though, check out the 5 reasons why your air conditioner may be frozen.

When it comes to air conditioning services, you really don’t want anyone but a qualified professional handling your system. Having the wrong person handle your air conditioner, or trying to maintain it yourself, can damage the system at best and cause serious injury at worst. Don’t take the chance of doing that just to save some money.
Not every air conditioner contractor is the same, though. Some are quite a bit better than others when it comes to the quality of their services. For that reason, you should look for the following three things when choosing an air conditioning contractor.

Ah, summer. The time of year when air conditioners are put to the test all over the country, and especially in Florida. Hopefully, you’ve already had a professional check out your system for you to confirm that it’s in good shape. If you haven’t taken a look at your indoor air quality too, though, then you’re setting yourself up for more problems later on. Indoor air quality is just as important during the summer as climate control. It’s also an area that a lot of homeowners tend to neglect. Let’s go over one of the lesser-known ways to improve indoor air quality in your home this summer, and help your air conditioner efficiency at the same time! Duct repair.

Indoor air quality is an important thing to keep in mind during the summer, when air quality tends to drop due to a number of factors. People shut all of their doors and windows in order to help keep their climate control as efficient as possible. While this works, it doesn’t do any favors for a home’s indoor air quality. Contaminants get trapped in the house, leaving you to breathe stale, dirty air for most of the day. You need to take steps to improve your indoor air quality if you want to be as healthy and comfortable as possible. One of the best ways to do that is to take a look at quality air duct replacement.

When you have an unexpected air conditioning problem, your first concern is to fix it as soon as possible. After all, you can be without an air conditioner for about fifteen minutes in a Florida summer before your life takes a dramatic turn for the worse. Don’t compound the situation, however, by going with the first air conditioning contractor you come across. A major repair or new installation can cost thousands of dollars, and you need to be careful who you choose to do this work for you.

While many homeowners recognize the importance of an optimally functioning air conditioning (AC) system, many cannot distinguish between maintenance, repair, and replacement services. Each of these processes requires a different approach, and understanding these differences can be vital not only for extending the life of your AC system but for saving you money and time.
At The A/C Guy of Tampa Bay, Inc., we specialize in all three of these services, which are often in demand due to the Florida heat. In this post, we’ll give a brief overview of each of these approaches, highlighting the importance of each approach as well as when it’s appropriate to use.
